Frightening Warning About Coffee

By Dr. Mohinder Suresh / June 24, 2018



Coffee is everyone's favorite food. It's cheap, tasty, and you can easily cook it. But could there be a dark side to coffee?

Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center warned in "The Weekly World News" that coffee can contribute to the development of colic, allergies and digestive problems.

    

"In the United States, coffee has shown big gains in popularity, and this trend is expected to continue as consumption is projected to increase from 1.5 million tons in 2003 to 2.5 million tons by 2010" write the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center researchers in an article published in the Weekly World News.

The high levels of dioxin in coffee could be potentially dangerous for some people with heart disease, arthritis, asthma and other allergic and auto-immune diseases that are particularly vulnerable to an exaggerated inflammatory response. Inflammation is known to cause damage to blood vessels, the heart, lung and joint tissues, skin and the digestive tract.

Researchers at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center have concluded that coffee contains very high levels of the potentially dangerous dioxin. How dangerous is it? Eating coffee could be far worse for your heart health than eating donuts!

Over the past 30 years, the FDA has received thousands of consumer complaints about coffee due mostly to neurological symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, memory loss, and, in rare cases, epileptic seizures. Many studies have shown coffee to be completely harmless, while others indicate that it might be responsible for a range of cancers. Until we know for sure, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center recommends avoiding coffee.
